As a former federal government employee, I know all too well how in demand we were because we knew “the ropes”. Private sector human resources management often drool over certain governmental employees because we, generally, know how the system works from the inside, have solid rapports with high pay grade shot callers, and know who to approach if (and when) we need access to government funding or want to sell them something.
Based on the chart, it seems the financial lobbyist market knows how this game works all too well. Makes you wonder if a conflict of interest clause needs to be implemented when it comes to influencing those who write our laws.
